Marriott plans huge, 4,000-room resort in Las Vegas

WASHINGTON — Bethesda-based Marriott International Inc. has partnered with New York-based developer Witkoff on a new resort in Las Vegas that will open in 2020.

The resort, to be called The Drew Las Vegas, will be at 2755 Las Vegas Boulevard South, near Circus Circus and Trump International Hotel Las Vegas. It will include nearly 4,000 rooms and suites and more than 500,000 square feet of convention and meeting space.

The developer did not disclose the investment price.

Marriott will manage The Drew’s two hotels, including one under its EDITION brand and the Vegas Strip’s first J.W. Marriott.

“The Drew Las Vegas will become a landmark property for Marriott International,” said Tony Capuano, global chief development officer for Marriott.

In addition to the hotels and casino, The Drew Las Vegas will also include convention facilities, nightlife, retail and restaurants.

Marriott already manages about 20 hotels in the Las Vegas area under its various brands.
